Hi I'm Colton Bradshaw

I grew up in Utah. Going on an LDS mission to Salvador Brasil. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love all kinds of sports and outdoor activities. I've played basketball, soccer, and baseball competitively as well as competed in track and field. Hiking, rock climbing, canoeing, and sailing are all activities I love and enjoy. I also have a love for working out and trying any new sports that I come across. I have two siblings and two amazing parents who raised me. Some of my other passions would include reading and messing around with my phones software and trying to figure it all out.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon born and raised. I continue to live by the Gospel standards set before me because of the extreme happiness and peace it helps me to feel when I follow and obey God's commandments. I have never felt happier than when I was serving others or living the way I was supposed to be. I know that Joseph Smith Jr. was and is still a Prophet foreordained to restore this gospel. I know that he (Joseph Smith Jr.) found and translated the Golden Plates into the Book of Mormon. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a living Prophet of God. I know the Quorum of the 12 Apostles are called by God to help the Prophet guide the Lords church. I know Jesus Christ died that we may live with our Heavenly Father again. My testimony comes from lots of prayer and scripture study. Listening to God's Prophets speak to the world during the semiannual general conferences. I have been called to Serve in Salvador Brasil to preach the Gospel to the people there and I can't wait to be going and doing my duty as a Priesthood holder.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving my elderly neighbors with many tasks that they are unable to accomplish themselves. I am called to serve as an Instructor to the 16 year old young men and teach them 2-3 times a month as well as help them plan their weekly activities. I also go home teaching with my home teaching companion to the families I have been assigned to once a month.
